First time I have seen an issue like this (a task that cannot be killed) 1. Installed shortyz, and ran full update, download stuck on LA Times and 1 more 2. Rebooted tablet, download still shows in task bar 3. Uninstalled shortyz, rebooted and download still shows in task bar 4. Installed a task killer, killed everything, rebooted, download still shows in task bar 5. re-installed shortyz, ran update, download still stuck in task bar Version of shortyz is 3.0.3, running on Acer Iconia A500 running Android 3.0.1 All I want to do at this point is to kill this task. Any help would be appreciated.
